    Nice stuff. How prevalent is aluminum in France these days? Is carbon steel still the norm, or is it changing?

    Also curious about the rapier blades of yours I saw - looks like steel tang bolt attached to aluminum blade? How far up the forte does the steel extend? Is it just screwed in?
    Always curious about these, since I had some a while back that had problems with the threads stripping on the aluminum, and it looks like you're trying to find ways to work around that.
